The Christian's Confusion | Idolatry and White Privilege: The White Evangelical Church in America

"Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder." James 2:18-19

The responsibility to end racial oppression resides in white hearts, minds, actions, language, and institutions. 

The American institution with the most power to oppress that also has the most power to reshape white hearts, minds, actions, language, and institutions is the white Christian church. 

I am always encouraged by those white American evangelicals that, showing their faith by their deeds, call attention to the reality of white privilege and the continuing significance of and damage caused by racism.
